Sorghastrum nutans 'Sioux Blue'

Indian Grass
Why isn't this stunning grass more popular? Indian Grass is extremely hardy, drought resistant, has showy yellow inflorescence in late summer and is attractive to wildlife. It has upright powder blue foliage forming clumps 2-3' tall, with stiff stalks bearing silky seed heads to 5'. I use it in large container with late summer annuals for a meadow in pot look.
